Holding on to Summer 2016

It’s been a while and it may not be any design work but it will return one way or another. In the meantime I thought I’d share a few shots I took on our yearly ‘Holding on to Summer’ trip down to Cornwall.

Creative Mondays 194 – Polzeath Beach 2015

“What is Creative Mondays?

Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.

So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”

It’s been a bit of a busy year so far but I will always find time to get down to the beach. Fresh sea air and plenty of surf, there’s nothing like it. It’s also becoming a trend that I will end up on a beach in September just to hold onto that Summer feeling one last time. This year is no different and I thought I’d share a few shots that I took over the last weekend.

2015 – It’s Here!

Wow! Is it just me or are these years flying by? Didn’t I just do a 2014 post? Maybe I’m just repeating myself again but I’d like to thank those for tuning in to see my site this year. If I can contribute one little bit to inspiring someone to pick up a pencil or grab that camera then I feel it’s all worth it.

2015 has a nice look to it and I’m hoping get more out of this site with both my self-initiated projects (Creative Mondays included) and more of my day-to-day design work. It’s all about expanding that brand and making it a force to reckon with!

Here’s to 2014 and let’s make 2015 something to rival!

This week’s been a pretty busy one and with it rounding off with my birthday on Saturday! I didn’t consider this birthday a milestone in any way but birthday’s are often a time of reflection and I thought I’d create a few double exposures of myself and Iceland, where I was born 35 years ago on October 4th, 1979.

As summer winds down, I thought I’d share a few photos from my recent time off. If there’s ever a place to be to take in an awesome sunset, it’s Cornwall. Sun, sand and sea are all I need to unwind, clear the mind and relax.
